For her recent exhibition Do You Speak Hair? Moscow based artist Katia Lyubavskaya created a series of small sculptures based on everyday objects. By replacing some of the elements with soft, pastel-coloured hair, mundane objects such a tap or a tube of cream are transformed into fantastical, tactile objects.

“This soft, anti-monumental material revives objects so you want to touch them,” Lyubavskaya says. “Synthetic hair symbolises femininity – its strength and magic. In the same way the power of words is used to distort facts in media, I use the power of hair, lying deep in the subconscious, to manipulate perception”. Here, we take a look at some of her most recent hair sculptures.
